16) AL MUTHANA 

 

AL MUTHANA, a winner in seven of his 14 runs to date, was ultra-impressive when beating the likes of Linebacker and Jet Dark in the Hollywoodbets Gold Challenge. Callan Murray will jet in from Australia to pilot the Aussie imported gelding in the big one. Questions remain over whether or not he will handle the 2200m trip. Let’s wait and see.
